Parish notes

Also known as Kirkpatrick Juxta Gretna, the church was granted to Guisborough by Robert de Brus c.1170 and confirmed to the priory by his son William 1191x1215. Successive disputes took place over the church between the canons and the bishops of Glasgow to whom the patronage was ceded in 1223, while the ‘parsons’ received increased emoluments (Gyseburne nos. 1176, 1185, 1186, 1188). The church wa still connected with the priory in 1330, but thereafter it resumed the status of an independent parsonage withing the patronage of the bishops of Glasgow (Ibid. no. 1188; Reg. of Pres. i 149 v). Cowan 1967, 123-4.
